      Must do in Marrakech
      We only did the waterfalls - the drive upto the mountain was good and we had a good day. It was a bit cloudy so not too hot but also meant the visibility wasn't great. Its definitely worth a visit.

      Amazing Tour
      This trip was amazing. The scenery was great and our driver Youssefe Marzoze was outstanding. He gave great information and insights into the landmarks we passed and answered all of our questions. He was also super friendly and treated us like family. This tour was one of the best experiences I’ve had to date and I highly recommend it.

      Incredible experiences with our fantastic driver Houssien
      We did the 3 day desert tour with our guide and driver Houssien. He was so thoughtful, kind and a careful driver. He always knew the best spots to stop for photos, food or even wild monkeys! The tour itself was incredible, we saw so much in so little time and we were mind blown to experience the Sahara so vividly.

      Ouzoud Waterfalls Outstanding
      Had the best day trip this was better than we expected. We were picked up on time taken to a rest stop for a toliet break along the way and then on to meet our guide Marwan who was outstanding and looked after the group every step of the way. He gave us a guided tour of the waterfalls told us about the history of it and Marrakech. We got to see some locals who work at the site making oil learnt about the history of the beautiful area and stopped at many beautiful places allowing us to take photos of the waterfall. We went on to have a boat ride and see the waterfall up close and meet some gorgeous monkey in the wild and feed them if you wanted to. Marwan was amazing speaking in so many languages to us in the group English French and Portuguese we have been on many excursions but he truly was the best guide ever also advising about dos don’t and safety. It ended with a beautiful meal at a restaurant over looking the falls food was amazing 120 dims each we had chicken and lamb tegine which was gorgeous. For the price they also gave you bottles of water bread and a salad type starter and melon, mint tea for afterwards . Highly recommend this trip we had the best time.

      Natural beauty!
      A truly excellent day out - the waterfalls are spectacular and largely untouched by human hands (take note Spain…). We took a private car to the waterfalls - be warned, it’s 2 1/2 hours there even in an F1 car given the Moroccan traffic - and had a guide arranged (Farid - lovely, knowledgable and un pushy). There are monkeys to feed at the top of the falls and numerous opportunities for wonderful photographs. The vendors located along the trail are nowhere near as pushy as their Marrakesh counterparts and it made for a Al round lovely change of pace and scene

      Trip to Merzouga with amazing driver Mazouzi
      The trip was amazing and you get a lot out of the trip for the money you pay. Our driver Mazouzi was part of why the trip was amazing - he was a very good driver, very friendly, helpful and a good guide as well if we had any questions. I can highly recommend this trip thanks to Mazouzi😁

    The journey was simply magical! Thank you to our wonderful driver who stopped at the most beautiful locations on the way to the desert! We also wanted to take a picture in the poppy field, and the driver fulfilled our little dream without any problems! The camp was very comfortable, the dinner was insanely delicious-tagine is my favorite dish now. Sunsets on the dunes deserve special attention, it was very beautiful and unforgettable. And at night we saw the most starry sky in our lives. Thank you to the guides, the driver, the Cheerful Bedouins for their drumming around the campfire. And to the local Moroccans for the fun company. Definitely one of the best travel experiences!🧡

    Really good experience with Yussef as our driver. Expect a lot of the trip of riding in a comfy bus with AC. All the restaurants we ate at were great around 12 euro per meal. The camel rides were amazing packed with a nice homemade dinner and then a bonfire as we got to experience dancing and drumming by the people we stayed with. We ended the night with stargazing and woke up for the sunset. If you only have 2 days to do an adventure in Marrakech this is the best one!

    Great first experience to discover the Sahara. The staff was very friendly and the stops on the way were interesting, and the landscapes at the camp well worth the journey.

    And now for the negative sides... As often in Morocco, there are some hidden costs. Everything is slightly more expensive, for example the tour guide in Ait Ben Addhou is 30 MAD, not 20, the restaurant is 120 and not 100. And there's no choice of where you can go, and the price is double of what you would pay in Marrakech for a much lower quality. And the same applies to the return trip.

    Another negative aspect is the complete absence of planning for the following day, everyone in the camp was constantly wondering what was happening and when, from the dinner time to what time to wake up in the morning to watch the sun rise and breakfast / leaving time.

    So overall a positive experience, even though a bit more organisation and clarity would make this a much more recommended experience.

    We booked this very last minute as we were struggling to choose between so many options of trips/companies to go to the desert with. I’m happy to say I can’t recommend Hamin’s trip more.

    It is a very long drive but Hamin did many stops along the way to break up the journey. He was really accommodating to our needs and we learnt so much about Moroccan culture through speaking to him along the way.

    The night in the desert was unforgettable and the camp was so beautiful and luxurious. All of the guides and locals there were so friendly and because of this we had such a special evening.

    The food at the camp was delicious and really authentic, we were welcomed with mint tea and the offer of a cool shower before dinner. Exceeded our expectations in every way, thank you!

    Had a fantastic time on this trip. Our driver Youssef went above and beyond and made the trip even better. I normally get carsick rather easily, however this was no problem as Youssef is an amazing driver. He would stop whenever we needed, when we needed to use a bathroom or take pictures, while somehow keeping us on schedule to see the sunset in Sahara.

    The tour was an amazing experience during our trip to Morocco. Even though it is an intense ride through rocky roads the sceneries are breathtaking and all is worth it as you get to experience the sahara desert on the back of a Camel. Youssef, our driver, made the trip even better with facts about the places along the ride and many stops for panoramic photos. He was also a very warm and friendly person. Even the refreshment stops are interesting with fun characters, shops, sceneries and amazing coffee. One note for future travelers is that you should make sure to have whatsapp as it is the way they contact you for pickup and the itinerary before you start the trip. Also during the camel ride and the overnight stay at the camp (which is icredible to say the least) you leave your bigger luggage with the driver at the van and you carry what you need for the night on the camel. Ando was a great choice as the driver, the ride, the restaurant along the way and of course the great guys at the berber camp elevate the experience. Waking to see the sunrise in the dunes is an once in a lifetime memory!

    Our driver/guide Mohamed Patat was amazing! He explained where we were and kept us in the loop about what we were doing next every step of the way. He was happy to let our group decide if we wanted to spend less or more time at certain spots and made sure we had time to take photos at some of the most notable points on the way. 7 hours sounds like a long time to be driving but with the frequent photo/toilet/water stops, the time flew by. The visit to Ait Ben Haddou was particularly amazing as we had a guide taking us round and giving us interesting insights into the place.

    The desert camping itself was also incredible. The minibus was parked by a road and then we travelled by camel for about an hour to get to the camp. To be honest, one hour was a good amount of time on the camels as we found our legs and butts had just about had enough by then! We had free time after arriving to climb the dunes and watch the sunset and then had some traditional tea and snacks with one of the guides before dinner. The camp itself is very well-established. Our tents were very comfortable with proper bed frames and sheets and there were good bathroom facilities with toilets and showers featuring hot and cold water.

    Overall an amazing experience which was well worth the money!

    It was a long drive to get to Zagora from Marrakech but Houssine made the trip comfortable with appropriate stops. We stopped at the Ben Al Haddou a UNESCO heritage site where many movies were shot including Gladiator and Game of Thrones. A local guide brought us around the site. After that we journey to Zagora where we had a camel ride to our tents. Ayob and Idris were helpful in making our stay comfortable. We had good food, good local music around a campfire and a good sleep. In the morning we woke up and trekked our way up a nearby hill for sunrise. We then had breakfast and took a camel ride back to our van where Houssine is there waiting. Houssine then drove us back to Marrakech. His professionalism is to be commended as he frequently ensures that we are comfortable throughout the journey.

    If you are short on time this maybe the one to go. Note that there are two tent sites in the area, one with en-suite bathrooms and one with shared bathrooms.

    The 3 day sahara desert tour was awesome and Abdou was a great driver. He made sure we were safe at all times, kept us on schedule and accommodated our requests as a group.

    We drove through the Atlas Mountains and stopped for amazing photos of the Berber villages, visited Todgha gorge, Kasbah Ait Ben Hddou Hollywood movie sets, explored the Berber farms and carpet businesses, had an overnight stay in Tinghir at Hotel Bougafer. The dromedory trek in Erg Chebbi Sahara dunes was delightful and our group had a very enjoyable time. The overnight stay at Auberge Sahara desert (Bedouin) camp at Erg Chebbi was accommodating and we took many photos of the sunrise the next morning. I’d definitely recommend this tour and this company. Abdou is the best guide in Marrakech. I look forward to booking another excursion when I return.

    We travelled as a family, my husband and I, our son and my dad who is 79. Our mini van driver Abdelaali was so friendly, and went above and beyond to look after us all. He was a safe and competent driver, and made the very long journey enjoyable, with many stops and opportunities for photos. The Atlas mountains were magnificent and vast.
    The Bedouin team that brought us our camels were all so gracious and welcoming. The camel ride was an unforgettable experience, my dad enjoyed it, but did find it that the one hour ride into camp did make him ache the next day. He chose to walk the next day to leave camp, the journey out was much shorter, only 25 minutes. The rest of us were fine and what a way to arrive into camp at sunset, just on the edge of the dunes with great views over the sand.
    We upgraded to the luxury camp and the tents were fabulous, with lovely clean facilities, full ensuite and very comfy king sized bed. My dad and son had their own tent with separate beds. There was only ourselves and another family stopping. Our mini bus companions had booked the standard camp. Both camps though next to each other had separate entertainment and eating arrangements. We would have liked this to have been combined.
    Our evening meal was delicious with alot of choice served up in a luxury large tent, followed by a campfire outside under the stars with the Bedouin's entertaining us with songs and drums, what a wonderful evening. But we heard the fellow camp doing the same, so why not combine this part of our experience. The star gazing afterwards was stunning. The finishing touch was them handing out hot water bottles to tuck us up with, we were very snug considering it dropped to about 3degs outside.
    Breakfast was again served in the large dining tent, with lots of variety.
    Both days we stopped and did a tour. Day one Ait Ben Haddou was fascinating. Alot of steps but so worth the walk with great views from the top. Lunch was plentiful. Day two was the Atlas Film Studios, again a great tour and a chance for photos.
    Thank you so much to all involved with making our trip so memorable.
